When you buy a cigar from your local cigar shop’s humidor, or have one shipped to your home from your favorite online cigar shop, you probably don’t think of what has gone into making that cigar. The deft movements of the hand that made it. The growing of the tobacco, the proper aging of it, the keen eye that looks at the tobacco to ensure that it is of the proper quality.
That knowledge didn’t just leap into existence. Adam and Eve were not enjoying a delicious Maduro cigar when the snake talked them into eating the apple from the tree of life. It is the result of years of effort and generations of passing down the things that have been learned. This cigar is an attempt by Ernesto Perez-Carrillo to honor the family around him that have helped him to become the cigar maker he is, and that have helped to shape the cigar industry as they have.
El Senador from his La Historia vitolas is named after his father, Ernesto Carrillo Sr., the man who taught Ernesto Perez-Carrillo (Ernesto Carrillo, Jr.) much of what he knows of cigar lore. It is a robusto cigar, a medium-bold cigar that you will enjoy, and one that has been lovingly made to high standards. It starts with an oily San Andres wrapper, into which is placed an Ecuadorian Sumatra binder, into which is placed long-filler tobacco from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. The result is a delicious cigar that you must taste to believe. It may cost a little bit more, but it is well worth the extra expense. Try One today!
